Military Planes Fly Over Moscow in Victory Day Rehearsal

Seventy-four Russian military airplanes and helicopters flew over Moscow today to rehearse for Russia's Victory Day celebration.

The main event on May 9 will mark 75 years since the Soviet victory over Nazi forces in World War II.

While the annual parade for this widely celebrated national holiday this year has been postponed due to the coronavirus, Muscovites will still be able to celebrate by enjoying the airshow taking place right outside their windows.
